Framing Tips!

 Framing Tips!

Did you know there's a super easy way to trim down 8.5"x11" prints to fit in an 8"x10" frame? Just pop out the glass and center it over the image, then lightly trace the glass. You can use scissors or an Xacto blade to cut it out. Then clean the glass of any fingerprints and replace it in the frame along with your perfectly sized print!
(A)- Pick out your frame (B)-Pop out the glass (C)- Trace the glass in pencil and cut along the lines (D)- replace glass with the perfectly sized print behind it. Don't forget to clean the glass! 

I recommend looking for a wide bordered frame because it gives the image more "breathing room." See how crowded it looks in a narrow frame? Wider is better. 
Narrow frames tend to look crowded

Next, instead of cutting down the print to fit in an 8"x10" frame, how about matting up and using a larger frame? You can easily get a mat sized 11"x14" with an 8"x10" opening. Then center the print behind it, (tape it if you want but be aware that tape can damage your print) and put it in your favorite 11"x14" frame. 
Choose a frame and a mat
No need to trim! Just center the print.
And remember that grouping several prints together always looks great! Here's a SALE link for 3 prints for $60. Enjoy! :-)

The Studio@Waterlane Farm

Look who has a new logo! 


Claire from The Studio@Waterlane Farm contacted me about creating a logo for her using some of my existing Pilates designs. She wanted to communicate that she teaches Pilates mostly on Equipment in her studio. She provided a gorgeous shot of a New Zealand sunset over the ocean for color suggestion and we went from there. All my best to Claire and The Studio@Waterlane Farm!

More Balance

Have you noticed that "balance" has been coming up a lot? It's something I think a lot about, as I juggle the many roles of mom, artist, business owner, etc. There is no perfectly balanced state; being static means not growing. So we keep moving and adjusting and growing and shifting.

There's a new print in the shop, called "BALANCE". I used my favorite balancing pose, crow. What's your favorite balancing pose?

A Balancing Act

I've been juggling a lot of things these past few months and trying really hard to keep it all together. I have a feeling many of you can relate. Especially those of you with young children...

So these cairn paintings appeared recently. I didn't realize what I was painting, which is common for me. It was the following morning that it occurred to me what I was doing. These paintings express my feelings of balancing precariously while remaining rock solid. It's a little exhausting but pretty amazing to see happen. Just like finding a random cairn by the riverside. Enjoy.

Time to Reconnect

Hey Everyone! 

I'm finally checking in after the holidays and new year. I'm currently taking a little sabbatical from design work to refuel and replenish and create some artwork just for me. I'm reconnecting with my creativity. You can see several new things on my Instagram account -  find me there- @lindsaysatchellart  

I'm jumping back into creating original yoga/pilates images and designing logos next month, so stay tuned! 

Meanwhile, I wanted to share an image from a client who has 3 of my Pilates images decorating her gorgeous studio, Reconnect Pilates. (yep, it's today's theme.)  See the photo below or go to her lovely website: http://www.reconnectpilates.com/

Ok y'all, go reconnect to something that's meaningful in your life.
